BefriendingBefriending service for older people in Darlington
What does it do?
How befriending works
Our service is very simple. We offer companionship on a weekly basis, be it at home, in sheltered accommodation or in a care home. There are no boundaries.
For client on this scheme we also offer a driver service to take people shopping, to hospital and doctor appointments, to visit their loved ones who are now in care or to visit us here at Age UK Darlington for one of our clubs or have lunch with one of our befrienders.
Who it is for?
Where it is available?
We need your help to support lonely older people who simple want someone to talk to. We have recently launched our telephone befriending scheme and need both men and women volunteers.You could make such a difference to older peoples' lives.
